'm talking about all our transportation systems. and one day high-speed rail. i know it's frustrating to push your way onto a overcrowded bus. i know you were frustrated in the past to reach your jobs late. i'm proud to say there's changes on the way and the nation largest addition is once again focused on operations and inviting a maintenance system. this year new hybrid buses will hit the streets. 60 new trillion buses are on the way and 1 hundred and 50 the vehicles will be over hauled. we'll see more at the time of the accidents on our streets. last year the mta adopted a new budget for a state of new repair investments. and no fair increases. last year, we secured $940,000 to complete the system. and this year we'll be starting an underground project. we're wraping up a project to follow that longer than gary boulevard and people will be so happy to ride these bus or so. and as a job fair we must get the train to downtown and explore long term funding for back and forth extensions in the city. by it's not just about buses and trains. bicycle riders have increased. and i can see the progr

public transportation system. it's going to significantly improve the movement of tens of thousands of franciscans and if you were here this past weekend when people were predicting it would be jam san francisco instead of san francisco you knew that folks were educated because of the great leadership at our mta, our county transportation, all of our transit systems and were at the highest level of educating the visitors and others to use public transportation. it will work for all of us and as we build the housing units we identified in hunter's point and treasure island and welcome more people to our great city and we are growing as a result. we are going to have the greatest subway system that can connect to our bart, to our caltrans, to up and down our muni lines. this central subway will be a great success. it will connect to some of the most densely populated and rapidly developing areas, and it will improve access to all of our vibrant communities, and really is investments like this that will foster loyalty among all of our public transit customers while we reduce carbon

, because as young people from an early age to use the system, the public transportation system, they are going to be committed to public transportation for years to come. >> do you feel additional issues that are facing your district -- that there are additional issues that are facing your district that are unique to your district that you have not mentioned? supervisor campos: there are issues that come up, whether you're talking about the mission, bernal heights, portola. one of the issues we have worked on in bernal heights is the issue of protecting a mural around the public library, which is an issue that raise a lot of other things. it led to a larger discussion in terms of who we are as a community. some people wanted to preserve the mural. others wanted to get rid of the mural. and we believe in a dialogue. so we brought together in mediation everyone so we could come to an understanding of what our common ground was and to see if we could agree on certain basic things, and we were able to come up with a solution that makes sense for the entire community. in a sense, it

to our transportation system. we want people to get around in a way that steps lightly on the environment. we want people to get around in ways that are enjoyable. and that really contribute to what makes san francisco special, such as our wonderful cable cars. but above all, we want to make sure that people can get around the city safely. it's no good to have a great transportation system if people can't get around safely. people need to not only be able to be safe, but to be able to feel safe, and nowhere is that more important than when you're on foot because that is when you're arguably the most vulnerable. it's also how every trip starts and ends. and many trips in san francisco, and we want more of them in between, to be on foot as well because it's a nicer way to enjoy the city. but if we want people to be out and walking, we need them to be safe. we want them to feel safe, and that's what we're here to talk about today. and none of that will happen without great leadership. so, without further ado, happy to bring up our great leader, the mayor of the city and county, ed lee.

thing. transportation symptom -- systems, central subway, high- speed rail. clearly, bart to san jose has been incredibly important to everyone, so that people could travel. i think there is a lot more maturity. there are many successful company that have already turned a corner on making a profit. start-ups have long-term views. they are not looking for instant gratification, as i believe the attitude was in the late 1990's, 2000's. people are talking a lot about issues on stability and asking government, like ours, to be with them in the long term, and to create relationships. certainly, for capital investors, it really is that relationship building. they want that face-to-face time with investors around our city. so we are creating conditions for that to happen. they are not short-term leases, these are long-term leases. twitter signed in for a good 10 years. others have signed long-term leases as well. they are in it for the long haul. i think they are measuring their success, building it up on that. not only innovating and starting up, we want them to stay and grow. we have been

. it touches on so many different parts of the transportation system. we were looking for ways to make parking easier and more convenient. >> in the beginning, we looked at parking throw san francisco, and her desire to price parking based on demand is how it started. >> for 70 years, we've used flat meter rates and short time limits. that did not always work so well. it did not make it easier to find a parking space. sf park has two main components. the whole point is to get them off the road quickly. and to create more of an spaces. we're doing the man-responsive pricing. we're obligated to find the lowest rate possible. generally, most of the time, there is one space available on every block. >> anything that allows muni to move more smoothly throughout the city is a great thing. if you manage parking effectively, then you've got fewer people circling around. it not only benefits folks that are parking, but it benefits folks riding muni, as well. continuously monitoring occupancy. that's what we used to make our android and iphone apps. it's open to everyone. lots of people can help get tha

a strategy, short-term and long-term to improve our transportation system. we can pat ourselves and say we did this and that, when we experience gridlock, buses not on time, we have to work together to fix that. thank you very much. >> any member of the public would like to speak? seeing none, public comment is closed. the one thing that i would add, something that i am proud of and i hope that we can continue to do as an agency, focus on how the projects that we are funding are impacting each individual district so we have a better understanding of what is happening on the ground. and that we ensure that the priorities that you as supervisors have and the communities that you represent, of those priorities are reflected in the positions made here. i want to thank staff are working closely to make sure that happens; the goal is to have an equitable distribution of resources in terms of the manage that we manage. we have tried to do that and i look forward to continuing in that effort. madam clerk, if you could please call item 4. >> executive directors report. information item. >> i wil

of those who live and work here rely on our transportation system to get us to our job, to school, to make sure we have access to all of the services that we need and this body is going to be critical to make that happen. i am excited about carrying out the tradition of outgoing chair campos about looking at the neighborhoods, to make sure we have a neighborhood focus, to our deliberations, and i want to make sure we continue with the presentations on the neighborhoods by district here in this committee but also working with each of you individually to hear your concerns and how we can make sure that this body can be responsible. i've spoken with commissioner chu a number of times about how the outer neighborhoods often don't get their fair share. these are issues that are examples of things happening in my district as well; district like district 10, parts of san francisco far from the downtown corridor. we are seeing a lot of development resources going to places where development is happening in greater numbers that we can actually use this body to fill in the blanks, n
